History in the Marking Journal – Looking for New Members

History in the Making is a national student history journal, published online twice a year. The journal aims to involve Australian university students in both sides of producing an academic journal, to give experience of the peer review process as an author to all students and as a reviewer and editor to honours and postgraduate students.

History in the Making is looking for new members to join our team.

We’re looking for PhD or Honours students in history, who are interested in the behind-the-scenes work involved in running a journal.

Our volunteer team shares our skills and experience to handle the journal’s:

  • liaison with our authors, reviewers, editors, and supporters;
  • graphic design;
  • publishing;
  • social media;
  • website management, and
  • database management.

If you know how to do any these things, or are keen to learn, then we want to hear from you.

The role will be easiest for someone based in Sydney. We meet about once a month, on weekends and weeknights, in Sydney.

If you’re interested in this opportunity, send us an email (editors@historyitm.org), telling us about your experience, why you’re interested in joining our team, and the skills that you could bring.
